A Time To Renew

Our vacation is coming to a close. We have enjoyed many beautiful moments. I will be sharing some of them with you in the coming days. Our hearts are refreshed and there is simply one problem...we do NOT want to leave.

Tomorrow, we will travel from the Outer Banks back to our home in Chester, Virginia. We miss our family and furry kids.

Blessings and prayers,

Update on my Aunt Ellen. She has less than a week to go with her "face down". She sees the doctor on Friday and we will know then if the surgery has helped her eyesight at all. Thank you for each of your prayers-not only is her extended family in awe of the kindness but Aunt Ellen is speachless and extends her love and thanks. Donna

Glad you've had a good time away and hope you return refreshed.

Thank you for the note of affirmation on my post "Acting Out." It is tough to be a teenager, and it can be tough working with them sometimes! They all need love and acceptance, even when they have acted out. Thanks again. wb

So glad for you to come back from your vacation because I know your four legged friends really miss you a lot.

In retrospect, vacations are good for us, they recharge our batteries and give us the much needed rest for the days ahead. The good thing is that we can always take more when we need them.

Have a safe trip. I'm glad you got to go. You must miss your pets so much. We miss ours when we just go for a day.

My sister is a super sister. I will try to get a picture of her cat. He's kind of elusive.

Take care

Yea, returning from Vacation is always hard. Back to the normal hustle and bustle is always such a gloomy thought.

Glad you've had a great trip though!
